Reiki for Panic Attacks
Panic attacks occur when a person becomes overwhelmed by a sudden and uncontrollable feeling of dread. During these attacks, the individual may experience several physical symptoms including breathing problems, trembling, weakness, dizziness, chills, sweating and a pounding heart. Some people also feel nauseous or develop stomach pain during a panic attack.
Whatever the cause of panic attacks, know that the panic itself will not kill a person and you can work through it. There are several ways to get through the attacks, and there are people who can help you work through it.
Reiki is believed to have a good effect on the individual as throughout a Reiki session, the practitioner strives to restore the sufferer's normal flow of spiritual energy to reduce the frequency of panic attacks and/or of limiting the severity of a panic attack when it happens.
During the Reiki session, the practitioner uses a static and gentle light-pressure touch with both hands slightly above the person in various Reiki hand positions. The duration of each session depends on person to person but it is usually an hour.
Reiki provides several benefits that may be helpful for people with panic attacks such as lowering stress levels and restoring feelings of control. Participating in Reiki session allows the person to regain some sense of control, which may reduce the risk of future panic attacks.
Many people have admitted that Reiki sessions provide them with a chance to relax, focus on their selves and develop a sense of calm. This enables them to manage themselves from spiralling out of control.
Learning how to use Reiki on yourself is actually quite simple and it is an excellent way to add more self-care into day-to-day life. It channels the earth's energy to heal the mind and body. At the very least, the worst that could happen is nothing and no harm is done when undergoing a Reiki practice.
